Delta Prep is a state-wide initiative funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to advance a national intimate partner violence primary prevention movement. As a Delta Prep member, The DC Coalition is committed to integrating primary prevention into Coalition policies and practices, training staff and board members, and building local capacity to foster this essential work in our community. Project activities are based on the social ecological model which states that sustainable change must happen on the individual, relationship, community and societal levels simultaneously. As we begin taking steps to incorporate this vital programming in our organizational goals, we hope to include several components that lead to a collective of individuals and organization committed to ending violence before it begins.

Project PEER– a collaborative endeavor with the Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Institute, Anchor Mental Health, D.C. Rape Crisis Center, Project ACTION!, Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities, Ramona’s Way, The Roc and DCCADV–strives to ensure victims and survivors of domestic violence who have disabilities will have access to high quality, seamless supports that are person-centered and responsive to each survivor’s needs. This year we begin the third and final phase of our project implementation. Using valuable information gathered during the needs assessment phase, we have developed five work groups to oversee upcoming activities: Collaboration, Staff Development, Policy, Women’s Skills and Knowledge, and Confidentiality, Guardianship and Mandatory Reporting.
